Holwell Holiday Cottages - HOUND TOR

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


Minimum Stay
3 - 7 nights



Hound Tor has many features betraying its original purpose. A small "mucking out" door from the kitchen to what would have been the "midden" and rings on the walls where the horses were tethered. The two wooden stays marking out where the stalls would have laid and the buttresses outside where once a bridge spanned from the Threshing Barn opposite to transport the hay for storage above the stables.

This cottage has loads of character. Downstairs it has a cosy sitting room round a large fire and spacious dining/kitchen overlooking the yard. Upstairs there is a king size bedroom with two small doubles with bed next to the walls. Central Heating Log Burning Stove dishwasher.

All cottages have as standard wood burning stoves, Lady Sandyford Range Cookers with twin hobs and ovens, dishwashers, washing machines/dryer, integrated fridge/freezers, WiFi, TV/DVDs etc. Family and dog friendly.

Location perfect for beautiful walks, drives and climbing Tors. There are several really good family friendly pubs and cafe's within walking and short driving distance. You always know that your children will sleep well at Holwell because the air is so pure and they will be so exhausted from their hikes etc. Holwell is a place where all the family can have a fun and relaxing time. There are so many natural pursuits to enjoy that don't cost any more money. One of the activities that is available all year round on Dartmoor is fly fishing. You can choose from the tributaries of the River Dart on the high moor where the water first rises to the wider reaches down near Totnes. Holwell is home to a varied and rich wildlife. Flora and fauna greet you at every turn. On Dartmoor there is really something for everyone. Gentle strolls along easily navigated paths combine with more ambitious hiking routes which will keep you going for up to a day at a time. The Dartmoor National Park offers a really great Guided Walk service and we can arrange for a Park Ranger to take you for walks in advance of your stay. Certainly a “greener” approach to getting about on your visit to Dartmoor. We can hire in cycles for the whole family that are here for your arrival and duration of stay. The location is also ideal for day trips to Torquay, Paignton, the Eden project etc. Something for everyone at Holwell Holiday Cottages.
